Female Interviewer Recounts Time She Was Booted Off Trump’s Plane

A British interviewer has recounted an incident involving Donald Trump long before he was elected president that has him laughing about it now.

Ruby Wax is an American-borne comedienne who, at 70 years old, has long been a fixture on the BBC as a host of several programs.

And while she’s not widely known outside the UK, she got tossed off then-billionaire real estate developer Trump’s plane in the 1990s after she laughed at him when he said he wanted to be president.

Wax recalled the story last week during an appearance on Kate Garraway’s ITV chat program.

The BBC fixture said that during pre-interview meals, which was a must with her, the interviewee would mention “really personal things” to her that she would later not bring up during the formal interview.

But that isn’t quite the way things worked out with Trump, according to Wax.


“Donald — you know, when a man treats you like an idiot, you kind of become an idiot,” Wax explained. “Because he knows females because he just has sex with them. But he couldn’t figure me out. He really was so fierce and so vicious. He said, ‘You’re angry with a smile.’ So he got me — because I was backed into a corner.”

“He did say, ‘I want to be the next president of the United States,’ and I thought it was a joke,” she continued. “I thought, ‘What a sense of humor this guy has.’ So I started laughing.’ And he said, ‘That’s it, I want her off the flight.’”

“So we only got to 33,000 feet, and we went straight back down again. It’s not a good show,” she added (see video below).


In 2017, Wax told the story to Garraway and Charlotte Hawkins on “Good Morning Britain,” saying that Trump “wouldn’t speak” after she laughed in his face about his presidential ambitions.

“So my crew and I landed and we were stuck in Arkansas with nowhere to go,” she noted, according to the U.K. Mirror. “We ended up finding him in Nebraska judging a Miss Nebraska contest.”


Meanwhile, Trump continues to lead all Republican presidential candidates and by a large margin, despite his multiple indictments.


Former Pennsylvania Republican candidate for Senate Sean Parnell told Breitbart News ahead of Trump’s rally in Erie, Pa., late last month that the GOP is closing the voter registration gap with Democrats in the state, which will make the former president’s path to victory next year easier than two years ago.

Breitbart noted: “A Pennsylvania Administration of Voter Registration 2022 Annual Report found that Republicans have increased their voter registration, while Democrats have lost voters.”

Breitbart added:

Since 2018, the number of voters registered as members of the Democratic Party decreased, the number of voters registered as members of the Republican Party increased, and the number of voters who chose to be unaffiliated or registered with a non-major party increased. Voter roll numbers adjusted unevenly across the Commonwealth; the net changes ranged from a registrant increase of 2.76% in Chester County to a registrant decrease of 9.60% in Indiana County.


“The state, technically, by the numbers, is trending more Republican,” Parnell noted in the interview. “One could make the argument that, Pennsylvania, in 2024, will be more favorable for President Trump than it was in 2020.”

The former Senate candidate also noted that Trump has officially signed on to the Republican National Committee (RNC) “Bank Your Vote” initiative, which encourages GOP voters to cast their ballots early.

In a video, Trump explained his reasoning: “This must change for us to win in 2024. We may not like the current system, but we need to master the rules and beat the Democrats at their own game, and then we can make our own rules. Republicans must get tougher and fight harder to cast our votes and get our ballots turned in earlier so Democrats can’t rig the polls against us on election day. We cannot let that happen. They rigged the election in 2020—we cannot let that happen in 2024.”
